over 315,000 afghan military personnel. it is their responsibility to step up to their defense of their nation. [applause] we went for al qaeda. we went for some of the late in. we accomplished that goal. we went for osama bin laden. we accomplished that goal. and now it is time. congressman ryan made very clear that governor romney has a very different view. although he says that he thinks we should get out in 2014, although he says that that makes sense, he says we should never have announced that and i might add, had not, the afghans would never step up, which should never have announced that and, when asked to guarantee you will get out, he says it depends. no, i'm serious. you heard it. it depends on the situation on the ground. it depends. well it depends on nothing other than the date as far as we're concerned. it is time for the afghans to take care of their own responsibilities. [applause] but like almost everything, it depends. it depends on which day you asking the question. [laughter] it depends. it depends on the circumstances. but it was not just on foreign policy
a second defensive line so we can counterattack. >> narrator: abu bakri never expected to be a rebel commander. >> (translated): i finished compulsory military service in 2006, and by allah's grace went on to study economics at the university of aleppo. that was me until the revolution started. >> takbir. >> allahu akbar. >> takbir. >> allahu akbar. >> narrator: ghaith continued his journey into aleppo. abu bakri said god willing he'd see him on the front line in two days. >> we are being smuggled into aleppo by rebels and activists. we're taking a long route through side streets, through residential neighborhoods and through villages, and it's a very complicated process. we have scouts moving ahead of us. we crossed a couple of the streets, and then we started hearing the bullets, the shelling, the machine gun fire. (machine gun fire) (explosion) >> narrator: ghaith reached one of the first rebel positions in aleppo. government soldiers had advanced to a building close by. the rebels were preparing to counterattack. (gunfire) >> we are withdrawing now after the attack. they fired in
of defense in a coordinated effort, in reconnaissance. but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense into a police organization. we are using our military assets in a prudent way to deal with interdiction, and we've made some success in this area. seventy tons of cocaine have been stopped. but, you know, when you look at the drug problem and it is a tremendous problem, and there are no easy solutions to it it's a complicated problem, and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug-free america, which is a challenge and a goal of all of us. not only will we utilize national defense and the department of defense, but we've got to get on the demand side of the ledger; we've got to get to education. and education ought to begin at home, and it ought to be reinforced in our schools. and there's another thing that will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets, we will use military assets but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem is law enforcement. and
'hanlon, senior fellow with the 21st century defense initiative. two men better equipped for today i could not find. eugene, you have been a foreign correspondent in places as far afield as argentina and europe. you know the middle east. mitt romney says he wants to arm the syrian rebels with serious amounts of military hardware. i ask you, eugene, is america ready and willing to start a proxy war with iran on the road to damascus? >> well, good question, and first of all, i think you have to ask given the way romney has changed his policy in various areas, you have to ask is he serious about that. but if he is, that's the one sort of bit of news that came out of his speech today. it's not as if we're not already at least assisting in the arming of the rebels. there was an intelligence finding by president obama that said we could give covert aid essentially through our allies, through the saudis and the qataris, but we have discouraged them from providing heavy weapons because we're afraid those heavy weapons might fall into the hands of terrorists. so that is the one difference that i th
the soviet premier to leave what he thought of as the last defense against the united states in cuba, but the soviet premier does not been. he says no, we cannot. all nuclear weapons are leaving cuba. >> had we invaded and the tactical nuclear missiles had been used, 100,000 u.s. soiers would have been killed instantly. >> during december 1962, both kennedy and nikita khrushchev to acknowledge how close they came to nuclear war. chris jeff wrote to kennedy, proposing that they work to eliminate nuclear weapons by the end of kennedy's second term. it was never to be. >> reporting on a crisis that was even more grave than we'd thought. that brings today is programmed to close. you can find constant updates on our website. make sure to check our facebook page. from all of us here at world news america, thank you for watching. have a great weekend. >> make sense of international news at bbc.com/news. >> funding for this presentation was made possible by the freeman foundation of new york, stowe, vermont, and honolulu, newman's own foundation, and union bank. >> at union bank, our relatio
later this morning is reverse some of those steep defense cuts that are part of that fiscal cliff that is looming at the end of the year. and here is one excerpt from the speech that we'll be hearing from mitt romney later on this morning. it goes after a chief theme of president obama. not only over his presidency but over his first campaign. here it is. it says, quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. soledad, yesterday some of his senior foreign policy advisers had a conference call with reporters. they were sort of laying out some presidencies of past that they think mitt romney might share some of these principles with. and the presidencies that they mentioned w
in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being deeply cut off, when we have no trade agenda to speak of, and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. host: that was mitt romney yesterday. it garnered a headline in "usa today" -- how much of the speech was against president obama and what he's done and how much of it was laying on his own trajectory and agenda? guest: mostly in his role as a challenger, this is about a critique of the obama foreign- policy. that's a very common tactic by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked about hope is not a strategy. he's trying to emphasize his critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the -- called russia the number one geopolitical
: that iconic photo of president obama sitting there with defense secretary robert get as and secretary of state hilary clinton with the osama bin laden raid and they are watching the video. >> uh-huh. >> bill: there was a cartoon yesterday where it's mitt romney and his cabinet and they are watching the raid own big bird headquarters. [ laughter ] >> bill: it is something people can identify with and will stick. >> yeah, and i think obama is pretty good at taking these kinds of moments and not letting them go. i think you will probably hear this in every stump speech -- >> bill: and he may raise it again at the next debate. >> yes. and they are pretty good at finding an advantage like this and trying to run it with. >> bill: on iraq mitt romney said yesterday -- criticized the president for pulling all of our troops out of iraq. the war in iraq is over. is mitt romney really saying we ought to go back in or stayed there? what is his point? >> i think that's the issue. he is not saying that. he doesn't have a plan that we're going to take 10,000 or 5,000 troops and
no matter what the situation, what the score. and they keep coming. the packers' defense, although it proved from last year, still not good enough to hold that lead. packers' offense not clicking like it did. the colts won it late. it was a huge game for the team, a huge game for coach pagano hospitalized with leukemia receiving treatment for six weeks. they took him the game ball afterward. this is the kind of game that could lift this franchise. they've already got two wins this year. >> i'm a big believer you never start rookie quarterbacks, you sit them out a year and learn. luck stepping up. another guy that's been stepping up in washington, and that's rg3. but yesterday, boy. he was taught a lesson. >> yeah. >> as dan fouts said, the sidelines is your friend. >> guys have to know how to avoid contact. if you get hit enough times, you're eventually going to hurt. robert griffin iii has been defiant about i'll take whatever comes my way. he took one yesterday. >> that hurts. nice pink shoes. >> he didn't know the score, didn't know what quarter it was. the redskins are now being investig
you. >> caller: sorry. it was a lesbian liberal, but she showed a simple graph that showed defense spending throughout the decades. >> stephanie: right. and what mitt romney would propose to spend is higher than what we spent for the korean war, vietnam war, and the gulf war, and building 15 ships a year for the navy -- >> stephanie: right. including three submarines, right. >> caller: why aren't people scared to death of this man? what the hell is he wanting? wars on both fronts -- >> yes, that's what he wants. >> stephanie: what is it jim, i don't have the numbers in front of me the more force we have than the next 40 nations combined most of whom are your allies. it's incredible. also -- [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: big gaps in romney's preexisting conditions. he says he has a plan to help people with preexisting medical conditions get health insurance. but you basically have to be covered in the first place. that is some catch. if you had a significant break in health insurance coverage then they would be able to turn you down. >> tho
if the president's not on defense in some of these states. are we going to take a beating down ballot? that one debate performance turned the mood of republicans around? it's just one debate. there are two more debates to go. you heard governor romney, his tone and his tenor. senator obama stumbled many times back in 2008. he has stumbled here in that first debate in 2012. the test is, how do you recover? and governor romney is more confident and he's trying to address his weaknesses. gloria just noted, reaching for the middle. saying, i want to governor. i'm not going to lay out my entire tax plan, because i would have to negotiate with democrats a and republicans. trying to make it not just about big bird, but we can't keep borrowing from money to pay for things we can't have. trying to make that 47% go away. wolf, in my travels, in michigan a couple of weeks ago, and in ohio, middle class people who have struggled the past few years were deeply offended by that. so governor romney's smart to try to make it go away. >> i want everybody to stand by. we have much more to assess what's going on.
